The student must meet the requirements for admission to the Toulouse Graduate School. Included in these requirements are:
- A bachelor’s degree from an accredited university or the equivalent to an accredited U.S. bachelor’s degree.
- An overall undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0 for the last 60 semester hours of course work or a 2.8 GPA on all undergraduate course work credited on the bachelor’s degree.
- Official and competitive scores on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), or the Examen de Admisión a Estudios de Posgrado (EXADEP) must be submitted with application. (GRE, GMAT or EXADEP scores must be less than 10 years old.)
- A demonstrated proficiency in oral and written English according to UNT policy.
- Evaluation of undergraduate courses regarding specified prerequisite courses before beginning the graduate program.
International students should refer to international.unt.edu for specific instructions on dates for application deadlines and other requirements related to international students entering the U.S. on student visas.
Go to gradschool.unt.edu/admissions for the online application (applytexas.org) and other specific information.
In addition, to be considered for admission into the international sustainable tourism program, students need to submit the following to the CMHT graduate coordinator:
- Three letters of recommendation from employers or teachers which attest to the applicant’s aptitude for graduate study.
- A professional essay that addresses the applicant student’s motivation and perseverance toward graduate education, previous academic or professional honors, future educational or professional goals and a demonstrated commitment to the field of study.
Should an otherwise academically eligible student be precluded from coming to the United States for the first two terms, due solely to visa denial, UNT will work with that student to develop an appropriate alternative completion option. In the event a student is not academically eligible to come to Texas for the first two terms, or does not successfully complete the terms in Texas, no degree will be awarded, though they may have earned sufficient credits for a lesser credential, such as a certificate. Should a student choose not to come to Texas, no degree will be awarded, but a certificate may be awarded at UNT’s sole discretion.
Students graduating from the Honors College with a 3.5 or higher GPA are entitled to automatic admission to, and are not required to submit standardized test scores for admission to, the Toulouse Graduate School and, with required prerequisites, to the graduate programs in the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
